Directions

Cook pasta in boiling water according to package instructions or until firm to the bite. Rinse with cold water. Drain and place in serving bowl.

In medium nonstick skillet sprayed with vegetable spray, sauté seafood just untill cooked, approximately 3 minutes. Set aside.

Add red and green peppers, onions, carrots and green onions to pasta. Add seafood.

Make the dressing: In small bowl combine yogurt, mayonnaise, dill, lemon juice, garlic and mustard. Pour over pasta. Toss and chill.

TIPS: firm fish filets can be used with or instead of mxed seafood. Be careful not to over cook.

Grilled fish instead of sautéed makes an excellent variation.

Make ahead: Pasta salad and dressing can be prepared early in day. Do not toss untill ready to serve.
